Concert Series | Excellence in the Community

All Excellence in the Community concerts are free and open to the public!

Excellence in the Community is an arts non profit established in 2005 on the premise that Utah’s best musicians and dancers represent a powerful resource for enhancing communities. We raise money to create more and better performance opportunities for Utah artists. We work with a wide range of artists and wide range of musical styles.

Our concept is to use quality music to bring people together. By offering our events free to the public people of all ages can come together to celebrate the accomplishments of Utah artists. We want families to bring their children to these events. We call our concept Music to Match the Mountains. More information is available at www.excellenceconcerts.org
